Our 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio means your professors will know you. They are accomplished in their field but also invested in their students and may invite you into their research, connect you with internships and be lifelong mentors.

The innovative Career and Connection Institute is designed to meet students at every stage of their career preparation journey.

Gordon is committed to students’ well-being through resources like the Chapel Office, the Center for Student Counseling and Wellness and the Academic Success Center.

We see the outdoors as one of the most important classroom settings. Gordon’s La Vida Center for Outdoor Education and Leadership has been a pioneer in its field and offers countless opportunities for character formation in an adventure setting.
